Alekhine wherever you are thanks for always prioritize

|Sep-26-12|| ||BEDRICH: GAMES OF ALJECHIN HAVE A BEAUTY AND FASCINATION .. yes. and I find it strange to mix here politics, Auchwitz an so on|
|Sep-26-12|| ||Sneaky: It was 100 years ago today / When Sergeant Alex taught the club to play / They've been going in and out of style / but they're guaranteed to raise a smile|

|Sep-26-12|| ||bischopper: happy century to remember, a GM is for ever|
|Sep-26-12|| ||schnarre: ...I concur <Castleinthesky>!|
...A two-knight finish like this is a great embarrassment!
|Sep-26-12|| ||JamesT Kirk: I agree with you,BEDRICH.|
|Sep-26-12|| ||Abdel Irada: Reality being what it is, I see no way that one can discuss certain chessplayers — or certain authors — however talented or even brilliant, and fail to consider their politics, their ethics and the evil they have done.|
Certainly it is possible to admire people for their achievements within their respective fields of endeavor, and at the same time to deplore them for their perverse ideologies. So let it be with Alekhine.
|Sep-26-12|| ||celso chini: Gentlemen,
Alekhine was a great chess player....and like Paul Keres.......a SURVIVOR! Stalin and Hitler were fanatics generated by tough times.
|Sep-26-12|| ||WhiteRook48: Alekhine could make thunderstorms from a blue sky.|
|Sep-26-12|| ||Abdel Irada: <celso chini>: Apply that logic far enough, and Charles Manson becomes a nice guy who was just pushed a little too far. We have to take *some* responsibility for our actions.|
|Sep-27-12|| ||HeMateMe: I don't think Dolph and Joe could have done all of that killing themselves. They must have had help...|
|Oct-03-12|| ||Trigonometrist: This is pretty damn insane.|
|Oct-03-12|| ||Shams: White's position quickly slips away from him, like a baby carriage careening down a long set of stone stairs at the entrance to a building.|
|Aug-01-13|| ||victor antoni: todo un shakespeare!!|
|Sep-10-13|| ||radioarno: there is absolutely no evidence that Alekhine was a Nazi. He may have written that piece, but even that wouldn't make him a Nazi. Alekhine was a chess player, first, second, and last. That's all.|
|May-08-14|| ||khaledpolpol: انه لدور رائع من الكسندر اليخن|
|Dec-11-14|| ||nhnsn: What does Black do after 16.Ke3 ? Because I think White wins the Knight...|

I think I first saw this game in Alekhine's 'My Best Games' some 35 years ago

It's very very clever, mate. I typed somewhere earlier today that Alekhine's chess reminds me of an old version of Fischer but I got the wrong guy, I meant Rubinstein reminds me of him.. Yeah Nxp leaving the queen is something that white should have just passed up the offer, lol. I think it's a forced mate in 5 if white takes the queen
|May-10-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: GOTD title should have been
"It takes a Potemkin Village"
|May-10-17|| ||morfishine: <User no found> Watching any Champion's League games lately? Some have been quite entertaining|
